    The Bacchae is concerned with two opposite sides of human nature: the rational and civilized side, which is represented by the character of Pentheus, the king of Thebes, and the instinctive side, which is represented by Dionysus. This side is sensual without analysis, it feels a connection between man and beast, and it is a potential source of divinity and spiritual power. In Euripides' plays the gods represent various human qualities, allowing the audience to grapple with considerations of the human condition.

    Euripides (c. 480-406 B.C.E.) is the author of eighteen extant plays and many more only surviving in fragments. He is the youngest of the three great Athenian tragedians with Aeschylus and Sophocles. Hippolytus, bastard son of Theseus and the Amazon Hippolyta, has sworn chaste allegiance to the goddess Artemis, thus severely offending the goddess Aphrodite by failing to revere her. Aphrodite swears revenge and promises that he will die before the day is done, taking with him Queen Phaedra, wife of Theseus.

    Euripide est un des trois grands tragiques de l'Athènes classique, avec Eschyle et Sophocle. Certains auteurs antiques lui attribuent 95 pièces dont 18 conservées dans leur intégralité. Il reste d'Euripide plus de pièces que d'Eschyle et Sophocle réunis, parce que sa popularité augmentait tandis que la leur déclinait. Il connut un immense succès durant l'époque hellénistique. Connu parmi les écrivains de l'Athènes classique pour sa sympathie sans égale envers toutes les victimes de la société, femmes incluses, ses contemporains l'ont associé à Socrate.
